In the late nineties Bryan Adams became curious about making photographic self-portraits for his album covers, and so chose to pick up the camera himself. That serendipitous decision was the beginning of a successful photographic career, parallel to Adams impressive achievements as a singer, songwriter and producer. Exposed is a retrospective of Adams photography and features portraits of friends and colleagues in the entertainment, fashion and art industries, including Morrissey, Ben Kingsley, Amy Winehouse, Michael Jackson, Louise Bourgeois, Lindsay Lohan and Judi Dench. This book, Adams first comprehensive monograph, exposes not only unknown facets of his subjects but also the depth of Adams photographic faculty. Bryan Adams, born in 1959 in Ontario, divides his time between music and photography. Adams has photographed for magazines including Interview, i-D, Harpers Bazaar, and British and German Vogue. In 2003 he founded Zoo Magazine for which he has received a Goldene Feder Award. In 2006 Adams was honoured with a German Lead Award for his series of photographs of Mickey Rourke. Adams photographic exhibitions include those held at the Saatchi Gallery and the National Portrait Gallery in London, and the Haus der Kunst in Munich.
